JetBlue Loves Stranded Customers So Much, It Won't Let Them Leave
Lest we get too obsessed with JetBlue here, it turns out there was a bit of hostage situation yesterday. Yes, it was the worst Valentine's Day ever for, among others, a couple headed to Aruba on their honeymoon. The JFK-Aruba flight, originally scheduled to leave yesterday morning, eventually took off at night, but another flight to Cancun, Mexico, was held for at least nine hours before being canceled.
At least four flights encountered hellish delays, including 1060, to Austin, and 850, to Ft. Myers. Gothamist has links to passengers' reports given to the Post and ABC. Were you on one of the affected flights? First, buy yourself a massage, then let us know about it (the flight, not the massage) via email or in the new-and-improved comments section.
